World Vitiligo Day.  It is a disease that causes you to loose the pigment in your skin not only in one place but in spots all over your body.  I have a friend with this disease.  She has lots of freckles except where the patches are.  Those are pure white.

Have you ever heard of Vitiligo?  Do you know someone who has it?

I've heard of it, but I don't know anyone that has it.

It is usually in patches.

She only has them on her knees and around her eyes.  She also has a big brown dot about the size of a quarter on the inside of her thigh.

The brown spot would be a birth mark.  In a person of color they would be mostly brown with white spots.  There is a newscaster out in California I think who has to wear makeup to hide the spots on his face when he is on the air.

I have a friend from church that has white patches.  I've never asked her what they were but it sounds like this is what it is.

Is this what Michael Jackson said he had?  Only he lost all of his pigment, not just patches.

Yes, this is what they say Michael Jackson had.  They gave it as a reason for him looking so light skinned.
